This morning at 1 o'clock, Yuma decided to go outside. Put on my robe and grabbed his leash and a small flashlight and headed outside. I had no clue where the nearest bush was, so just started walking.
The light was not strong and I kept walking and never ran into one. Finally, Yuma just did his thing on the ground and we headed back. I've learned over the years to leave a light on or I could lose the White Lion too.
I was now wide awake, so I thought I would be first with the Wordle games. I went through them in no time and posted them at 2 o'clock and then went back to sleep, happy to have that done for the morning.
Was awake by 8 o'clock and turned on the heat to get breakfast going. Finally stepped outside and it was warmer out there than inside. Beautiful 70 degree day ahead with little wind and lots of sun.
At 10 o'clock, Deb and Riley stopped by to bring me a stick of butter. Forgot the butter yesterday. Deb was supposed to use my plug puller to pull the plug from her generator, but she called someone in town to tune it up and they will take care of the plug problem.
It was 12:30 when Yuma and I decided to run down to the U.S. border and get some pictures of the Colorado River and the Wall. Only about two miles as the crow flies, but we took the road and that made it six miles.
The sandy road took us around the west side of Pilot Knob and then turned to the east on the south side of the mountain.

|Colorado River and the Wall. Is that a raft I see on the Mexican side?
|Yes, it is!
|There's another one in the middle of the river. See how fast that current is traveling toward the Imperial Sand Dunes?
Beautiful area of the Colorado River coming from Yuma, Arizona. However, it is very remote and not seen by most folks unfamiliar with the area.

|End of the line. Time to head home.
